CoA confronts BCCI and CAC
CAC’s selection of Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid is challenged by the CoA.

The intra tussle in BCCI seems to know no bounds. The Supreme Court appointed CoA has been though several road blocks from implementing the Lodha recommendations to the issue of the team’s coach. In the process of administering BCCI, the committee is turning up as an opposition to various stakeholders of the board. In a recent stance, the CoA expressed its discern on “disruptive and subversive conduct” of former administrators and ousted office bearers of the board. Reportedly, a several ex-officials of BCCI are creating hurdles to implementation of the Lodha recommendations.

The Committee of Administrators has turned up the heat on the BCCI's old guard, asking the Supreme Court to take note of the "disruptive and subversive conduct" of disqualified office bearers who were preventing the board from implementing the Lodha Committee's recommendations. The committee pointed out N Srinivasan and Niranjan Shah as the persons creating roadblocks in the administrative process.

Per the CoA both Srinivasan and Shah has lost their respective roles after the recommendations were enforced on the Board. The 70 years of age cap made the officials ineligible to continue as the heads of their respective cricket associations as well as to attend any BCCI meetings. As complained by the CoA, both Srinivasan and Shah are keeping on involving in the administration apart from attending BCCI meetings, including the Special General Meetings.

CoA invoked the Lodha Recommendation and the Supreme Court order to prohibit these two officials from their posts. In the recent report, the committee stated these officials has “vested interest in stalling implementation of the judgment.” It urged BCCI members and officials to take “concrete steps” to implement the reforms.

Also, in the issue of coach selection, the CoA is confronting the decision of the Cricket Advisory Committee. Per CoA, the CAC went beyond their brief of selecting the coach. Lately, the CAC selected Ravi Shastri as the head coach of the team, along with Zaheer Khan as the bowling coach and Rahul Dravid as the batting coach for overseas Test. CoA will consider the matter “very seriously.” The responsibility of selecting the coaching staff has been the duty of the head coach.
